Comments AKA. Harlan Orgill

Edward Scanlon was an inspector from Scotland Yard who arrived in Toronto about the time a young woman was brutally murdered. He told Murdoch and Brackenreid that he was pursuing the man known as Harlan Orgill. Inquiries to Scotland Yard revealed that the real Edward Scanlon was murdered in Cairo, Egypt and that the man who arrived in Toronto must be Harlan Orgill. He attacked Julia Ogden, who stabbed him with a pair of scissors. As he lay dying, he asked that Julia be thanked for relieving him of his misery.

Scanlon (Orgill) has an affinity of the game snakes and ladders. It is also how he determined how many women he killed in each city, eight snakes on the board means eight women murdered.
